Larson Electronics Releases New Battery-Powered Tow Lights

Fri Oct 7, 2016

Kemp, Texas - Larson Electronics has released its new battery-powered LED tow lights to the RV industry.

The HDTL-WLED-2X-M wireless battery powered LED tow lights are powered by eight 1.5V AA batteries and has stop, tail, turn and hazard strobe light capabilities. The units are housed within polycarbonate construction housings and the LEDs are encased within a polycarbonate lens. Each light features 24 high intensity LEDs to offer superior visibility and brightness during operation. The lights communicate with a transmitter that is terminated in a 4-pin trailer plug, delivering accurate operation of the wireless lights.

The unit’s LED lights maintain a constant bright and visible light without loss of color and also can serve as roadside hazard lights. The lights are attached to any metallic surface with a strong gripping force of the magnetic base, which also is secured to a pivoting bracket, allowing operators to adjust the lights vertically. The compact and light-weight form factor, durability, portability and high power of these LED tow lights make it ideal for trailers, security, work areas, roadside emergencies, warehouses and anywhere an easily assembled, highly visible tow or hazard light is required.

“The portability of this LED tow light lends itself to a wide range of applications including being mounted on trailers, RVs, boats, snowmobiles and more,” Larson Electronics CEO Rob Bresnahan says. “This set of hazard brake lights is 100 percent portable, waterproof and shock resistant.”

Larson Electronics carries an extensive line of LED light towers, portable power distribution systems, explosion proof lights for hazardous locations, portable work lights and industrial grade LED area lights.
